The Silver Blade Set is a set of cosmetic items for pioneering sailors daring enough to scout uncharted waters. The set is adorned with a stylistic compass symbol with rhombus shaped gems; the colour palette is of blue, grey, and whites, with highlights of cyan/turquoise. The Black Dog Set, Mercenary Set, and Aristocrat Set share similar base models for many of their items.

These items are obtainable exclusively through the Insider Programme as part of its reward scheme. Players receive rewards every week of at least 1 hour (non-consecutive) playtime on the the Insider build; the Silver Blade items are awarded every 5th week until the 30th week. Starting on the 31st week, the rest of the Silver Blade items are awarded every 3rd week, except on the 37th week, from that point on. For more details and a schedule of rewards, see Insider Programme.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The Silver Blade was owned by Captain Flameheart, while he was human, and is featured in Tales from the Sea of Thieves.[1] He sailed the ship into the Sea of Thieves seeking adventure and riches. An encounter with rival pirates lead to the ship's unfortunate end, leaving its Captain and crew stranded on an island where they would eventually turn into Skeletons, and its human Captain would begin his life as the Skeleton Lord Captain Flameheart.

One major difference exists between the Silver Blade seen in-game and its book counterpart. In-game, the figurehead is a white eagle, while in Tales from the Sea of Thieves, the Silver Blade's figurehead is described as a "spellbinding portrayal of a girl setting free a dove [...] gripped by [what is presumed] to be the cold hands of death". This description matches concept art seen in The Art of Sea of Thieves, which has been released in-game as the Aristocrat Figurehead for the Aristocrat Set.
